Bibliography Style Latex Vancouver

Biblatex provides several standard citations styles, if no citation style is set LaTeX uses the one that matches the bibliography style. Below you can see an example:

\documentclass{article}\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}\usepackage[english]{babel}   \usepackage[ backend=biber, style=alphabetic, citestyle=authoryear ]{biblatex}   \addbibresource{sample.bib}%Imports bibliography file   \begin{document}\section{First section}   This document is an example, two items are cited: \textit{The \LaTeX\ Companion} book is \cite{latexcompanion}, and Einstein's journal paper is \cite{einstein}.   \medskip   \printbibliography\end{document}

The parameter passed to the command that imports biblatex is the one that sets the citation style, in this case authoryear. The standard citation styles are:

  • Implements a numeric citation scheme intended for in-text citations. Should be employed in conjunction with the numeric bibliography style.
  • Compact variant of the mode. Citations like [1, 2, 3] are replaced by [1-3].
  • Verbose variant of the style. Instead of [2, 5, 7] will print [2];[5];[7].
  • Alphabetic citation scheme similar to the standard in style bibtex. To be used in conjunction with the alphabetic bibliography style.
  • Verbose version of the style. Instead of [Doe98, Doe95, Farn2004] will print [Doe98];[Doe95];[Farn2004].
  • Implements the author-year citation scheme. To be used in conjunction with the author-year bibliography style.
  • Compact variant of the style. Prints the author only once if subsequent references passed to a single citation command share the same author. Prints Doe 1992, 1995 instead of Doe 1992, Doe 1995.

The Vancouver Style is the preferred referencing style for most Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences courses. It is a numerical system.

This UWA guide to Vancouver is based on  Citing medicine: the NLM style guide for authors, editors & publishersandAMA manual of style: a guide for authors and editors

The in-text citation:
A superscript number is inserted in your text at the point where you refer to (cite) your source of information. A consecutive number is allocated to each source as it is referred to for the first time. See the example text. This number becomes the unique identifier of that source and is reused each time that particular reference is cited in the text.

Use superscript numerals outside periods and commas, inside colons and semicolons. When more than 2 references are cited at a given place in the manuscript, use hyphens to join the first and last numbers of a closed series; use commas without space to separate other parts of a multiple citation.

The reference list:
References are listed numerically at the end of the body of work. Agreed abbreviations for journal titles  must be used and can be searched for from the National Library of Medicine's (US) PubMed website within their NLM catalog: Journals referenced in the NCBI database. 

If using the Endnote Referencing software you can install the Medicine Journal Terms List, which will includes over 16,000 Journal abbreviations.
